Similar to a frittata, this savory bread pudding starts on the stovetop and finishes in the oven. Using a large cast-iron skillet will help you get a crisp brown crust.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°.

Step 2

Combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl, stirring well with a whisk.

Step 3

Heat oil in a large cast-iron or oven-proof skillet over high heat. Add onion; sauté 2 minutes. Add sage and garlic; sauté 1 minute. Add pepper and tomatoes, stirring well. Bring to a boil; cook 1 minute. Stir bread into tomato mixture; top with cheese. Pour egg mixture over tomato mixture (pan will be very full).

Step 4

Carefully place pan in oven; bake at 450° for 25 minutes or until egg is set. Let stand 5 minutes. Cut into 4 wedges.

My wife and children love this recipe. We have it about once a month. I will usually use 8oz. of goat cheese, and whole eggs instead of just some of the yolks.

This was disappointing and almost inedible.

Wow. It was truly amazing! I made it for friends at their cottage and they are STILL raving about it, a year later!! I did get a bag of shredded mozzarella that really made it. I also used fresh tomatoes instead of canned, and fresh basil.

Absolutely fabulous! The layers of this were beautiful in cross-section, with the egg mixture on top of the bread/tomato mixture. I served it at brunch with bacon and yogurt, and it is definitely company-worthy. The goat cheese was the best part - little pockets of creaminess!
